Above is the music video for Sledgehammer, a piano ballad co-written by Sia and Rihanna for the Star Trek Beyond soundtrack. Earlier this year we found out Rihanna is a Trekkie when she designed a collection of Star Trek-inspired sunglasses for Christian Dior. She also wore a few vintage Star Trek tees (click here or here for examples). Now she’s singing the lead song for the new movie.
Mel Ottenberg worked on every music video for the Anti era so far including this one. His styling assistant Alexa Lanza kindly provided the credits for the video so let’s talk fashion. Rihanna’s outfit came from Rick Owens‘ Fall/Winter 2016 womenswear collection.The look includes the orange jumpsuit featured in Look 27 and a billowing scarf in the same colour. The baggy one-piece is sleeveless and has a scoop neckline and large cargo pockets on the thighs. Later she wears the high neck, long-sleeved top. The Barbadian also wore a silver choker by Brooklyn-based brand L. Jardim, which is favoured by Zoe Kravitz. Designer Lizz Jardim creates each piece by hand. Visit the website to shop some pieces. Additionally, Rihanna sports one of Jennifer Fisher‘s XL molten cuffs ($915) on each wrist. The Fall 2016 bracelets come in silver- or gold-plated brass and you pre-order on her website.
Bonus: Here’s a video of Rihanna discussing her love for all things Star Trek and how she feels about the song.
